Silver Amends Fracking Statement
June 30th, 2011

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has amended his initial statement about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plans to allow hydraulic fracturing in New York. It is decidedly positive now compared to the initial release.

“I am pleased that the DEC will permanently ban hydraulic fracturing in sensitive watershed areas and the aquifers that feed them.  The Assembly also will be vigilant as the DEC moves forward and will work to ensure that no permits are issued anywhere in the state where there are any possible dangers identified by the federal EPA study.”

Meanwhile the Independent Oil and Gas Association issued their statement on the DEC’s supplemental generic environmental impact statement:

IOGA of New York looks forward to reviewing the SGEIS to determine if the protections outlined by the state Department of Environmental Conservation strike a fair balance between protecting New Yorks environment and allowing the expansion of natural gas exploration in New Yorks Southern Tier.

Our membership has always supported a tough, but fair, regulatory structure. Allowing natural gas development to expand in New York will bolster the states economy, provide thousands of new jobs in the near term and move our nation to greater energy independence. After so many months of waiting and delay, we look forward to the chance to get people working and our economy growing.
